This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't know if this can be answered in a short space, but when depicting a 3-tier architecture it was always shown with the client, then the business tier in the middle, and the database on the back end.
Now, it seems like when MVC is shown in a diagram it shows the client, then the DATABASE in the middle, with the business tier (I assume) on the back end.
I don't understand the difference (or the advantage) of MVC over the traditional 3-tier. Thanks!
